After the Gateway BIOS logo appears, repeatedly press the F8 key. The Advanced Boot Options menu opens. If it doesn't the motherboard is most likely bad).
On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (advanced), and then press the ENTER key.
If that does not work, turn PC off, Do this again, but this time choose 'repair your computer' at the top.
If it still does not work, either your hard drive went bad or Windows is corrupt. Either way Windows must be re-installed.
Try these two things:
1. Go to your BIOS setting by pressing F10 immediately after you switch on your notebook, then select your HDD as your First boot drive and then save changes and exit. If it does not works then follow step 2.
2. Reinstall/freshinstall your Windows OS with a windows OS disc.
usb or ps2 keyboard ? might need to be enabled in BIOS
If you want to use a USB keyboard to access Windows command prompt options, make changes in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), or to operate legacy operating systems, you must enable support for the device inside the BIOS.
Shut down the computer and disconnect the USB keyboard. Connect a PS/2 keyboard to the PS/2 connector port on the rear of the computer. Turn on the computer and press the "Delete" key several times as soon as you see the initial boot or company logo screen. Wait for the main BIOS setup screen to appear. Press the right or left arrow keys to move the cursor to the "Advanced" or "Advanced Settings" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Integrated Peripherals" or "Peripheral Configuration" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key to navigate to the "USB Controllers" option. Press the "+" or "-" key to change the menu option to "Enabled." Move the cursor to the "USB Legacy Support" or "USB Legacy Function" field. Press the "+" key repeatedly until the value option changes to "Enabled." Press the "F10" key to save changes to the BIOS settings and exit the setup utility. Wait until the computer begins to restart and then press the power button and hold it for approximately four or five seconds. The computer shuts down completely. Unplug the PS/2 keyboard from the computer and set it aside. Reconnect the USB keyboard restart the computer. As soon as you see the initial boot screen, tap the "Delete" key several times and wait for the BIOS setup screen to appear. If you are able to access the BIOS setup screen with the USB keyboard, USB support is active in the BIOS.

I love using Gigabyte boards in my own Home Theater PCs, so I run across this problem sometimes when I'm setting them up for the first time with a USB keyboard.
Pretty sure the problem you're having is the same--the BIOS isn't set to 'recognize' USB keyboards by default, so try the following:
Turn it off, and connect an older PS/2 style connecting KB to it;
Turn it back on, enter the BIOS, and find the settings page with 'USB Keyboard' in it;
Change that setting to BIOS rather than SYSTEM, so next time you boot, it will 'see' your USB KB. Plug in your USB KB before rebooting, then save the settings and reboot the PC again.
You can leave the old PS/2 KB plugged in to make sure you can change things, but try your USB keyboard out as well. You should be able to control BIOS settings upon reboot.
Hopefully this was all you needed. If it persists, be aware that some Gigabyte mobos have had BIOS issues galore (eBay is full of Gigabyte BIOS chips).
I'm sorry but I don't know how to reset your BIOS. But to get around your problem, you should be able to enter the boot menu to boot to the optical drive to install your OS.
In order to access the boot options on this notebook computer, press the F10 key while the Gateway screen is displayed during the startup process. This opens a Boot menu with the option to start the computer to any of the available drives. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW keys to select a menu option, and then press the ENTER key to start to the selected device.
To "boot" (start) to a CD, DVD, or a floppy disk, the media must be in the drive when starting the computer.
